Not sure what model you have But if its the A600 /01or 5210 and you are running destinator 6.0 or higher you first need to recharge the battery so that it shows 5 bars on the battery icon. Low signal can be from a bad or low battery. a faulty antenna ( flip out)
I am the distributor for these GPS in Australia. If you need a new battery contact me as i am now the only one with these batteries.
I also recommend you get one of our 50Db antennas The skymaster. to help improve the signal and take some of the load off the battery. Do not use those cheap Chinese antennas as they are only 28Db and cause more lag than they are worth.
the site is Marbella Australia contactt me from there

My finedrive is not picking up an signal...it says waiting for gps signal and nothing happens.


some of the reasons a GPS cannot find signals..

1) BAUD rate and PORT are incorrect
2) GPS not in clear view of the sky
3) Battery is too low to receive signal.. Recharge using USB or AC charger before trip
4) Siirf chip is damaged from plugging in gps when starting the engine, this will damage the chip beyond repair

No valid GPS signal for two days, what I can do?


You can try a reset Check in the manual where the reset hole is i thinlk this model is under the scfreen surround which is removable.

This will take ut back to factory settings, you might want to check if its set to the right PORT and BAUD try this

GPS Program Port: COM1
GPS Hardware Port: COM9
Baud Rate: 4880
Manage GPS Automatically (Ticked)


Now other reasons are low battery= low signal//fully charge the battery


no signal from satellites= damaged SIIRF chip caused by plugging into car power when starting engine...needs new m/board

Maximum time to access 1-9 minutes max...

My tomtom cant find any satellites and keeps saying waiting on valid gps signal......


check the port is set to 8
not sure if your model has GPS search wher it finds the port and vbaude automativcally, if it does use it and see if that fixes it if not
your battery is too low
you have a damaged SIIRF chip and that is expensive to repair

GPS IN DEMO MODE


Hahah..

Rabbit,

First off you may want to check what kind of SD card is in the slot. it's underneath the rubber. I haven't worked with the 2000's all that much so I'm not certain if your concern could be fixed by changing a setting in the settings menu of your 2000. Look for the word Demo everywhere!
